I’ve got a FM16 system that converts raw data (dimensions, etc.) into a SVG floor plan and elevations in the Web Viewer. However, my boss now needs me to use this same data to generate a DXF for integration with another system. Has anyone had experience doing this? I’ve been reviewing the DXF specifications, and it seems unfortunately nontrivial to me. Any guidance would be appreciated.
Thanks so much!
Using the script step export field contents, I can not export the contents of a container field. Error message reads ...could not be created on this disk. use a different name, make more room on the disk or use a different disk. I know I have had this in years past, but I can not remember the fix for this. I found something about setting the fonts to .ttf, but I am on a mac running fmpa16. Any help would be much appreciated.
I'm doing an export of a table with 5 fields to an Excel file with an XSL stylesheet to control the formatting of the Excel data. So far it's working well - I just need to add some additional formatting for a few of the cells. I'm looking for help with examples/syntax for setting the following attributes:
- making a cell bold
- changing the font size of a cell
- making all columns set to auto resize so they fit the contents of each column (same as double clicking the divider between 2 columns)
All fields I'm exporting are text fields.

I can't figure out a solution for this. The final result is an export, No data have to be stored in filemaker afterwards.
I need to combine and export data from 3 tables to the SAME field in Excel. Lets say we have table A: A1, A2 and A3, table B: B1, B2 and B3 and table C: C1, C2 and C3. These are tied together by a unique number in the solution. I need these fields to output i the export as all 1's in one column beneath each other, all 2's in one column beneath each other and all 3's in one column beneath each other.
I am thinking, that I need a new table to combine these fields in 3 new fields D1, D2 and D3 and then do the export of this table. After export, the table could be deleted until next export. I am thinking this should be set up as a script.
Does the above make sense, and could it be done via a script?
Thanks for the help - really appreciate it!

I've done quite a bit with FileMaker in the past, but have never jumped into the XML arena. Now I have a need to do so, and I'm really needing some help with something I'm sure is quite basic...but still foreign to me. I have an external data source which export XML in a very specific format (see attached). I need to import that into FileMaker so I can manipulate the data, do some various lookups, etc. Once I've made my changes in the data, I need to export in the exact format it was when imported so the external data source can properly import.
Not sure if it makes sense to import into 2 tables (workflows, workflow steps) or just a single table. I'm open either way. Once the data is in FileMaker I can get all my calculations and lookups and scripts going and make the data what I need it to be, but then I'll need to export it.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Thanks so much in advance!
